Upland habitat is just what it says it is, up-land. It is slightly higher in elevation and does not have water above ground. There are a variety of plants that are found in the upland areas of Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge such as green sage brush, rabbit brush and other native shrubs and grasses. There is also a large variety of animals that use the upland habitat.  Rabbits and rattlesnakes are common in the area, but at one time the greater sage grouse and big horn sheep dominated the area.
